Arsenic Water Filter

Arsenic enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices. Arsenic won’t affect the taste or smell of drinking water enough to call attention to such contamination. Surface arsenic pollutants enter the groundwater system by gradually moving with the flow of water from rains, melting snow, etc. Arsenic is not dissolved in water. When it is found in a water supply, it usually comes from mining operations or from runoff from agricultural areas where materials containing arsenic were used. Arsenic is used industrially as an alloying agent, as well as in the processing of glass, pigments, textiles, paper, metal adhesives, wood preservatives and ammunition. Arsenic is also used the hide tanning process and to a limited extent in pesticides, feed additives and pharmaceuticals.
